Samsung Galaxy S7 How to delete Facebook app

On the new Samsung Galaxy S7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge the app "Facebook" is installed by factory. Since this app uses a high battery consumption or you simply do not need this, you will now ask for sure: "Can I delete or uninstall the Facebook app on my Samsung Galaxy S7?"

The answer is unfortunately 'no'. The Facebook app cannot be deleted. The only option that remains is to disable the app. We show you briefly how to disable on the Samsung Galaxy S7, the Facebook app, so this is no longer visible on the home screen and the app menu.

1. For this purpose, open the app menu and then look for the page with the Facebook app

2. Tap in the top right on "Edit". Small minus signs appear now next to the Apps.

3. Now select the Facebook app. These can now be "Disabled". Disabled means that the app is installed, but does not execute any actions. It must be reactivated if you want to use it .

Samsung should really come up with a way to completely remove the FB app. I do not use it and it keeps re-installing an app installer going outside of my security to make updates to my phone. Each time I force stop and uninstall the updates, it just re-installs them. I have automatic updates disabled in my Play store so how these keep going around that is beyond me and very infuriating.

I do not want Facebook tracking me. Samsung must give consumers an option to remove this company from taking my private data, tracking what apps I have installed on my phone.

I think it's a little bad that you don't have full control of what you want to do with your programs on your own phone. It may work to disable it, but it does still take a little space. Otherwise is it a good phone.
